Early on Monday morning, a 7.5 magnitude earthquake struck in the South Island of New Zealand, affecting several areas including Wellington. Thankfully, our Wellington team were all safe and unharmed.
Thank you to everyone in the wider SilverStripe community who have reached out to check we were OK and offer support. Your messages have been amazing!
Our office suffered minor damage and we will have some clean-up to do once the building has been given safety clearance by structural engineers. We are thankful this earthquake struck overnight, resulting in the lowest possible impact.
Wellington staff are currently working from home, as we repair our office and get back to normal.
We’ll post status updates below to keep you in the loop:
